Why give up your games, your friends, and all that you love about Steam when you play games in the living room? With Big Picture, we’ve reformatted Steam for use with your TV and game controller, so you can enjoy your Steam games from the comfort of your couch.
Grab your laptop and an HDMI cable, connect a dedicated PC to your TV, or just kick back in your dorm. Setup is easy.
Pick up your game controller or liberate your keyboard and mouse - the choice is yours. Big Picture, paired with your controller, makes for a powerful match. You can navigate Steam, surf the web, and even chat. Oh, and play games too.
Browse or search the entire catalog of Steam games, videos, demos. Catch up on the latest releases, top sellers, and grab the daily deal while it’s hot.
Now you can bring your collection of Steam games along with you when you hang out in the living room.
Everyone’s here. Whether they’re on a PC, a Mac, a mobile device or a sofa, all your friends are now in your living room, ready to join your game or just chat.
QWERTY is for keyboards. Daisywheel is for controllers. Now surfing and chatting are easy with your thumbs, a controller, and Daisywheel, Big Picture’s new tool for typing.
